A while back I put together a DIY Pirate Sloop kit and over a dozen brave souls took me up on my offer. I'm feeling an Ironclad mood coming on; is there anybody who would like to give a D.I.Y. Ironclad a go? If so leave a note in the comments section on my blog link

An ACW ironclad, yes.

Pyrate Captain,
Monitor or Merrimack?

If others send a reference with a good drawing.

No paddle wheels please
